"Before there was the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, Los Angeles was a rough place, building its way out to the global city of today. In the late nineteenth century it was a rapidly growing city filled with pimps and prostitutes, Chinese railwaymen, robbers, smugglers, and corrupt politicians. It was a city where losers and dreamers from all over the world could came to make their fortunes...author and filmmaker Liz Goldwyn re-creates a 'sporting guide'-- a secret diary and guidebook of the best brothels and prostitutes in the city....Goldwyn reveals the history of the period, from the rage for corsets to crushed pearl powder cosmetics and the awful cures for syphilis"--Publisher's blurb, rear cover
